Mindekirken Quilting Ministry meets on Thursdays – the 1st, 2nd 4th and 5th Thursday of each month at 9:30am to make quilts for local charities and fundraisers.
For generations, pieces of fabric have been lovingly and carefully pieced together to make beautiful quilts. The quilts may have been to celebrate a life event or simply to fill a household need. Whatever the reason, quilts offer comfort, warmth and show people someone cares about them.
In 2010, they made and donated 26 quilts to three local charities – Salvation Army, Harriet Tubman Shelter and the Marie Sandvik Center. Still more were sold and the proceeds used for scholarships to Skogfjorden Norwegian Language Village and books for the Mindekirken Sunday School.
You can help in this ministry! No supplies or sewing experience is necessary. Just bring a bag lunch and join in the fun and fellowship! The Quilting Ministry group meets on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursday of the month at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall.
